"I've got a verbal agreement with a team but I can't say where I'm going to be racing in 2015 yet, hopefully in the next few weeks," Joe Dombrowski said.

TEAM SKY

Having ridden impressively in his first two years at the Continental level, Joe Dombrowski failed to perform in line with huge expectations after joining Team Sky in 2013. It took over 18 months to discover why the 23-year old American was unable to make any further progress, but it seems that another squad will benefit from a surgery he has recently undergone as he is set to change the squad for 2015 season.

 

According to Cyclingnews, Dombrowski is set to join the new Cannondale team which will be managed by the Garmin-Sharp manager Jonathan Vaughters, even though no contract has been signet yet.

 

"I've got a verbal agreement with a team but I can't say where I'm going to be racing in 2015 yet, hopefully in the next few weeks," he told Cyclingnews.

 

Briefly appearing in the Grand Prix Cycliste de Quebec and Montreal as his first events following the surgery, the 23-year old American have deeper insight into health problem which effectively hampered his last two seasons spent in the Team Sky outfit.

 

"It started in mid-June last year, in my first year with Team Sky. The symptoms are vague, it's just a loss of power in one leg and numbness on that side, it's hard to understand exactly what it is, so it took a year or maybe more to figure out what was going on," he explained to Cyclingnews.

 

"In the initial test to get the diagnosis, they looked at my blood pressure after effort and I had about 40% drop in my left side. That made it clear there was something up and so did more invasive studies. I had surgery near home on my artery seven weeks ago. They cut the artery long ways and then stitch a patch on the damaged section. In my case, the artery had become stuck to the psoas muscle and was kinking it when in the cycling position. Now the pressure is the exact same, and from an ultrasound, it looks like the artery is hearing well."

 

"It requires six weeks completely off the bike and about nine weeks of keeping my power and heart rate down. I'm about slowly and steadily coming back at it, but I think I'll be back up to speed in the next two months and be really motivated for a really good winter. I'm ready to put it all behind me and move forward."
